Miki Agrawal has faced patriarchal pushback, fought girl-on-girl hate, ridden the roller coaster of building businesses as a female CEO, and even overcome an attempt to burn her for witchcraft (figuratively). In order to navigate the complicated - at times maddening - struggles of contemporary femininity, we need an unabashed manifesto for the modern woman that inspires us to move past outrage and take positive steps on the personal, professional, and societal levels. This manifesto galvanizes us to action in 13 major areas of our lives with as much firepower as possible. These are the credos we live by, the advice we give to friends, the tenets we instill in our companies and peers on a daily basis. Stories of badass female movers and shakers are shared in this audiobook, too, to give you an extra jolt of "I've got this". It's a whole-body "f--k yes" to your work, your love, your relationships, and your mission - while doing it all authentically, unapologetically, and with full integrity. 1. Language: English.

Welcome to the Hotel Opulence: a place where dreams are made, fortunes are lost, and hearts can be mended, stolen, or broken at a moment’s notice. A lucky charm hidden in plain sight…Charlie Cooper has never had the best luck, at least not the kind he can keep for himself. On the surface, he’s an ordinary guy in need of a win. But what lurks beneath the surface is what makes Charlie truly special. He has a gift, “Lucky Lips,” as someone called it. One kiss from Charlie means a day of good luck. The more meaningful the kiss, the better the run of luck that follows. But every gift can also be a curse…For every run of good luck that follows whoever he’s kissed, Charlie’s luck turns sour. After years of being taken advantage of, Charlie isn’t looking for love, romance, or anything resembling a connection that could put him at risk, and the graveyard shift at Hotel Opulence is the perfect place to hide. A high-roller looking for a thrill…When the world is at your fingertips, the only thrill worth seeking is one that can’t be bought. Dutch Herrington is a self-made millionaire with money to burn. High-stakes poker is his passion and he’s played at some of the best tables in the world…except the ones at Hotel Opulence. Dutch has seen and had it all, but there’s something special about Charlie Cooper that sets him on fire in a way that only the cards have given him before. When a fateful misunderstanding lands Charlie right in Dutch’s lap, tempers and passions will flare, leaving Charlie with no option but to reveal his secret to the one person who could break his heart wide open. Can Dutch let go of his need to win, or will the temptation of Charlie’s “Lucky Lips” be too much for this risk-taking high-roller to bear?There are secrets hidden behind every door in the Hotel Opulence. Check in, grab a cocktail, and place your bets. The Lucky Charm is a steamy m/m romance featuring a devastating billionair 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lee Lovsett.

Read by Dallas Campbell. The Beginning and the End of Everything is the whole story as we currently understand it - from nothing, to the birth of our universe, to its ultimate fate. Authoritative and engaging, Paul Parsons takes us on a roller-coaster ride through billions of light-years to tell the story of the big bang, from birth to death. 13.8 billion years ago, something incredible happened. Matter, energy, space and time all suddenly burst into existence in a cataclysmic event that’s come to be known as the big bang. It was the birth of our universe. What started life smaller than the tiniest subatomic particle is now unimaginably vast and plays home to trillions of galaxies. The formulation of the big bang theory is a story that combines some of the most far-reaching concepts in fundamental physics with equally profound observations of the cosmos.From our realisation that we are on a planet orbiting a star in one of many galaxies, to the discovery that our universe is expanding, to the groundbreaking theories of Einstein that laid the groundwork for the big bang cosmology of today - as each new discovery deepens our understanding of the origins of our universe, a clearer picture is forming of how it will all end. Will we ultimately burn out or fade away? Could the end simply signal a new beginning, as the universe rebounds into a fresh expanding phase? And was our big bang just one of many, making our cosmos only a small part of a sprawling multiverse of parallel universes? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dallas Campbell.

Drake, NFL superstar. Six years ago, I left town for football...at least that's what everyone thinks. The truth is, I couldn't face what I did. I just wanted to be with her, my soon-to-be stepsister. It was wrong, and the only thing I could think to do is to pack up and run! Just as I thought I had it all, running into her again made me realize that she is the only thing I've ever wanted. And this time, I will never run away. I deserve my second chance in love, with her...only her. Bethany, the good girl. Talented, tall, ripped, and with smoldering good looks that burn your soul.

The only problem is, he is back in town and wants to take me out! My best friend Amelia, who happens to be his sister, insists that he has changed. Do men like Drake ever really change? Maybe. Maybe not. The thing is, I cannot afford another mistake like this. Not now that I have him, my son, my only joy. A romance full of twists and turns! Ready for an emotional roller coaster? 1.

Lange’s entertaining book makes it clear that, no matter how wild and risky his lifestyle may be, he takes comedy more seriously than anything else. (Publishers Weekly) When Artie Lange's first book, the number-one New York Times best seller, Too Fat to Fish, hit the top of the charts, audiences learned what Howard Stern listeners already knew: that Artie is one of the funniest people alive. He is also an artist haunted by his fair share of demons, which overtook him in the years that followed. After a suicide attempt, a two-year struggle with depression, and years of chronic opiate addiction, Artie entered recovery and built himself back up, chronicling his struggle in brave detail in his next book and second New York Times best seller, Crash and Burn. In his hilarious third book, the two-time best-selling author, comedian, actor, and radio icon explains the philosophy that has kept his existence boredom-free since the age of 13 - the love of risk. An avid sports better and frequent card player, Lange believes that the true gambler gets high not from winning, but from the chaotic unknown of betting itself. He recounts some of his favorite moments, many of which haven't involved money at all. In this candid and entertaining memoir, he looks back at the times he's wagered the intangible and priceless things in life: his health, his career, and his relationships. The stories found in Wanna Bet? paint a portrait of a man who would just as quickly bet tens of thousands of dollars on a coin toss as he would a well-thought-out NBA or NFL wager. Along for the ride are colorful characters from Artie's life who live by the same creed, from a cast of childhood friends to peers like comedian and known gambler Norm McDonald. The book is a tour of a subculture where bookies and mobsters, athletes and celebrities ride the gambling roller coaster for the love of the rush. Through it all, somehow Artie has come out ahe 1.
